There has never been a better time to Live Life on the Veg.

Our refined range means a little less flexibility for some, but with that comes opportunity. Many of us have more time at home, more chances to cook and the potential to find new rhythms that can become a way of life.

Here you will find inspiration to adjust to new ways of cooking and living over the coming weeks. Alongside are lots of activities to keep you entertained and connected to the community around your Riverford veg box.

So join us, let’s #LiveLifeontheVeg.



It's easy to get stuck in a recipe rut – but what better time to try new things in the kitchen?

Eat with bread or pitta to absorb the juices.
